WrestleStat Rankings | Week 16 2020

 

Last week after the official Coaches Rankings was released, we made some enhancements to our RPI Rankings page. It now displays the WrestleStat RPI, Official Coaches Rankings, along with the Win% and records. This should give fans a one-stop-shop to look at the different criteria used for seeding come tournament time.

In tournament rankings this week, Princeton moved up another spot and is now in the top 5. The top 3 remain the same, with Iowa, Penn State, and then Ohio State. At number 4, Wisconsin slides up 1 spot from last week.

Individual rankings didn’t see too drastic of changes: Jacob Schwarm of UNI moved up 3 spots to #9 after his pin of Alex Mackall (Iowa State). At 141, Mitch McKee moved down 1 spot after getting upset by Max Murin, although Murin did not move up in the rankings, though his ELO rating definitely went up 10 points. Samuel Colbray moved up 8 spots to #9 after his big upset win over Bryce Steiert (UNI) last weekend.

WrestleStat Rankings | Week 15 2020

Our big news in rankings this week is the fact that Matthew Kolodzik has come out of his Olympic/Gray shirt status and is into the ranks at 149. He debuts at #3, behind #1 O’Connor, and #2 Sasso. He’s actually wrestled in two tournaments, and two duals this season and already has 10 matches on his resume, so not far off the 15-match minimum required to receive an RPI ranking.

We are nearing the end of the regular season, which means the RPI rankings are getting more and more interesting. Of all ten weights, there’s an average of only 1 or 2, per weight, for wrestlers in the top 15 that still down have their 15-match minimum requirement met.
